A while ago I got a male peacock from an lfs not really knowing what species it is, I already looked at lwandas, jakes, and german reds, Rubin reds ,etc. I don’t think my fish is any of the above or if it is it’s a strain I haven’t seen. If anyone knows it would be appreciated.6FE39CDD-D1A2-44BB-92B2-5B92C0F2035E.jpeg

Maybe an Aulonocara Blue Gold?

Or maybe a bicolor?

I am very bad at identifying fish but fhis is the best match I could find. Someone who knows more will help you.

Thanks but I know what bicolor peacocks look like, my peacock is kinda orangey-brown not yellow. But thanks for the reply!
Some fish have muted colors and some are more bright even when they are the same species. I have dragon blood parrots in pink, orange and almost red. With peacocks its the same. Maybe your fish isn't colored up yet fully or maybe it has slightly different colors.

I hope some expert help you in this.

Yeah, but it's orange and brown with white and orange fin tips and an orange anal fin sooooooo.......

Its also about 6 inches so it's colors are formed.

Thanks again though!
